Global Cancer Update Program provides an analysis of international scientific research into how diet, nutrition, physical activity and weight affect cancer risk and survival.
The program is produced in partnership with American Institute for Cancer Research, World Cancer Research Fund in the UK and Wereld Kanker Onderzoek Fonds in the Netherlands. As part of its development, the Global Cancer Update Program has built the largest cancer prevention database in the world, housed at Imperial College in London. It is the only authoritative scientific resource of its kind, is evaluated by an independent panel of leading cancer experts, and to date contains approximately 12,000 papers on cancer prevention and survival.
Preventing Cancer. Saving Lives.
To celebrate the launch of CUP Global, we will be presenting a webinar that will describe the new program, introduce the new CUP Global Panel, outline the role of the Expert Committees, and highlight the key goals and priorities for this new and exciting future for our flagship research program.
This 90-minute event will take place at 9:00 – 10:30am (EDT) on Thursday 13 October 2022, with presentations from the CUP Global Panel members including introductions from Professor Lord John Krebs and Professor Matty Weijenberg (the new Global Cancer Update Program Panel Chair and Deputy Chair, respectively).
We are also delighted to announce that Professor Sir Michael Marmot, special advisor to CUP Global, will present cross-cutting issues as they apply to this research, with a particular focus on health inequalities.
Places on the webinar are limited, so please make sure you sign up and secure your spot.
Third Expert Report

Created from a massive database of scientific literature, the Third Expert Report (Diet, Nutrition, Physical Activity and Cancer: a Global Perspective) provides a comprehensive and authoritative body of evidence on how lifestyle factors such as diet, nutrition, body weight, and physical activity can impact cancer risk and survivorship.
